9th Annual Meeting of the International Lymphoma Epidemiology Consortium

The 9th Annual Meeting of the International Lymphoma Epidemiology Consortium (InterLymph) was held in conjunction with a meeting of the InterLymph non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL) genome-wide association study (GWAS) project and the 4th Annual Meeting of the International Multiple Myeloma Consortium (IMMC) on April 15-16, 2010, in Bethesda, MD at the Natcher Conference Center on the NIH campus. The 2010 InterLymph meeting consisted of a workshop to develop cross-consortia strategies to identify risk factors across the B-cell malignancies: non-Hodgkin lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, and multiple myeloma.
